Jan and Michael Muscarella, Franchise Owners

“We decided to open our Seniors Helping Seniors in-home care business after spending several years assisting our own parents in the transition from fully independent seniors to the time when they needed more care,” says Michael.

“Most older adults want to maintain an independent lifestyle, but not all of them have family members close by who can help out when necessary,” says Jan. “Families with seniors still living independently need help handling the concerns of their aging relatives while also managing the needs of their own children and careers in an affordable way.”

Jan and Michael are dedicated to helping our senior population to age-in-place with dignity, compassion and joy. The Muscarellas are using their own experiences as a guide in providing services that enhance the lives of our senior care receivers, while at the same time allowing peace-of-mind for their adult children and loved ones.
